Autumnal Learning – Homeschool

Autumnal Learning – Homeschool

A unit all about fall ya’ll. Corn, pumpkins, apples, and leaves, worksheets, experiments, and treats. 
Fall is my favorite season. All the bugs die off, the leaves are so many different colors, and it finally cools off again. Plus there’s pumpkins, apples, and Halloween! We want to learn continuously as we are still in that phase that everything is so interesting. Here are a few things we are planning for this month:

To Work

School at home versus homeschool are two very different concepts, but don’t be afraid of worsheets and unit studies.

To Read

We like to read every night before bed, it’s great family bonding time and some of the conversations started by the stories are great.

 

To Do

Hands on fun will never fail to teach something, even if it’s only unintentional, haha. (Like the smell of burned popcorn, yuck!)

 
Pumpkin Mask
Pumpkin Mask – act out ‘5 Little Pumpkins’ and watch Charlie Brown’s ‘A Great Pumpkin’ special.
 
Cinnamon Dough Leaves
Cinnamon Dough Leaves – talk about creatures that eat leaves, and what happens once they fall off the tree.
Corn Activities
Corn Activities – explode a kernal of fun with these great science ideas!
Preschool Apple Science

Pre-k Apple Experiment

To Eat

Extend the theme to the sense of taste, after learning about how things work, grow and are used, let them taste the season.

 
Pumpkin Hot Chocolate

Notice that all of the items linked up above are about autumn, NOT Halloween. We do a 13 nights of Halloween unit as well, that we bring Christ into the holiday as much as possible. We do love all the fun of Halloween, but it’s hard to ignore the not so great parts, so we do talk about those, and ways to steer clear of the dark parts.
